College football predictions, picks, odds: Alabama, Ohio State, Texas on upset alert in Week 13

After several really special weeks in a row, a regression to the average came. Unfortunately, the penultimate week of the year was a failure: only one of the four unsuccessful picks fell, and two ended in a completely embarrassing way for us.

Texas completely crushed Kansas 55-14, leaving no doubt on the -9 line. Oklahoma took a 28-0 lead after Bedlam’s first quarter against Oklahoma State and never looked back. Nebraska was one point behind the loss against Wisconsin and Duke was two points behind Pitt. Luckily, Houston beat East Carolina 42-3.

This week the rivalry comes to the fore. The biggest game of the weekend in Columbus, Ohio features a surprisingly large lineup. Games against rivals from Alabama and Clemson have even bigger sums. Let’s prepare for chaos. Here are five games that catch our eye in week 13 due to money line failures.

Baylor number 23 in Texas

When: Friday 12:00 pm ET | Where: Darrell K. Royal Stadium – Austin, TX

Latest odds:

Texas Longhorns -8.5

Analytical systems have been overestimating Texas all season because of the close result against Alabama and the dominance of the Oklahoma team without a quarterback. Favorable numbers make the Longhorns a two-point favorite against Baylor, despite only winning one game in double figures since the Red River Showdown: Kansas.

Baylor gave rival TCU the toughest game of the year, losing 29–28, gaining over 500 yards and five yards for a carry against a Frogs defense that pinned Longhorns forward Bijan Robinson for 29 yards. The Longhorns are 1-3 up against the top six in the Big 12 standings and have struggled to close a 31-10 lead over Kansas State. Choice: Baylor +260

Revenge is on your mind as The Game is a college football playoff game. Ohio State has spent the last year preparing for a rematch after a 42-27 loss in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Defensive coordinator Jim Knowles positioned the defense well against weaker competition, but Ohio State didn’t play a team that could push it to its physical limit.

Michigan is an imperfect team that is one-dimensional on offense. When a running back Blake Corum came out against Illinois, the Wolverine’s attack fell apart. However, Corum must return to Michigan, and Ohio State hasn’t faced a team that could compete with them in the trenches after a tough game against Notre Dame. Take a chance. Pick: Michigan +240

Coastal Carolina at James Madison

The massive line in this game is arguably the biggest support for Coastal Carolina quarterback Grayson McCall, who will miss the game with a leg injury. Backup Jarrett Guest threw two interceptions in a tight 26-23 win over Miss Southern Miss as the Chanticleers nearly lost a 17-0 lead in the first quarter. The canceled game against Virginia last week only adds to the confusion in this team’s valuation.

However, James Madison hasn’t given up over the past month, losing games to Georgia South, Marshall and Louisville and losing 40 points to Georgia State. The Dukes have impressive talent, but Coastal Carolina has the depth, experience, and maturity to take care of business and keep up their New Year’s Six hopes. Choice: Coastal Carolina +430

South Carolina at No. 8 Clemson

Can lightning strike twice? Of course, why not. Clemson dominated this match, winning seven games in a row starting in 2014. However, the Tigers make good use of Shane Beamer’s Gamecocks as they find their rhythm.

Gamecocks quarterback Spencer Rattler rediscovered his charms with a school-record six touchdown passes in a 63-38 win over No. 10 in Tennessee. South Carolina scored in nine of 10 total possessions to win two consecutive seasons. South Carolina has a chance of getting the best quarterback on the field if everything goes right. Choice: South Carolina +430

Auburn at number 7 in Alabama
